A 76 mm tall 57mm wide essence of pure Downhill. With a 79a compact formula for those easy smooth slides and soft ride. A Tall, vented and stronger core to maximize acceleration.For the core placement we selected something different. We called it “INSET”. If you have turned your offset wheels around, you know what this feels. The inner lips will maintain the grip while the outer one will help you drift easily when needed, even freshies.
These wheels are a clever innovation that we're surprised isn't more prevalent. Most of your grip comes from the weight on top of your board- which translates to the inner lip. So Ahmyo made them nice and sharp, and set the hub towards the outside, while leaving the outside with more forgiving lips for a progressive drifting experience. This way you have more decisive power over whether you're sliding or not.
Akasha is in essence, all of the material and space in the physical realm. It is the first of the 5 elements created that exist in nature. It has the property of sound. Akasha is also genrally accepted as meaning "sky".
